Re: A Great New App: DRUMGURU...check out...

I am not getting sound with the sample pack on my IPad. Do I need to use head phones/ear buds with this app or do I have a problem with the download?

Re: Drummers who play too much!

Thank You!!!

The "Less Is More" statement has always bothered me. It's such a all inclusive statement that it feels like someone is choking the life outta me. If a songwriter says, "use the less...

Re: How do you know when you have good timing?
